Supplies you will need:
Two nesting Smoothfoam wreaths (mine are 16″ and 11″)
Silk flowers
White glue & hot glue
Straight pins

Wrap the larger wreath with darker ribbon and secure the ends with glue and/or pins.
Wrap the smaller wreath with a lighter ribbon. 
Glue the two wreaths together and set aside to dry.
Attach the flowers in between the wreaths with pins. 
The final touch was this little garden fairy in the center, attached with some hot glue.

Gel Press™ News!

Pin It

I am so thrilled to be working for such a fabulous company like Gel Press™!  This is a wonderful product and I am so honored to be the Creative Team Lead!


This is more information about "Gel Press"
Gel Press is the new brand name of gel printing plates manufactured by POLYGEL- the company that developed the original formula and fabrication process for a permanent gel mono printing plate and they hold the patent.

At one time- this formula was private labeled with another company. That company is now sourcing the gel elsewhere.  Polygel believes strongly in the high quality of its product and launched GEL PRESS - to ensure when you purchase Gel Press - you are purchasing the quality gel plate that is known to perform. Any other gel plate is NOT the original gel. 

As the manufacturer of GEL PRESS - Polygel can offer significant price advantages to retailers and therefore the consumer. 

Here are some Prints/Projects I have been making!
